Totally Devastated--a Trailer Park Homestead update update
So to update this mornings Trailer Park Homestead update, in which I mentioned they were going to put a new floor down on the garage, they not only put down a floor in the garage, they put down an awful "crushed asphalt" driveway that covers almost the entire area my garden was. So where this summer it looked like this:
Now it looks like this:
That is not just mud. That is an actual driveway. Obviously, I'm not going to let this stop me from gardening, especially since I suspect (but have no proof of) that is the purpose of the driveway, since that was not mentioned when I was talking to the contractor this spring. It just means that all my hard work to dig out the garden plots that made the yard so pretty this year (unless you are the trailer park manager, in which apparently the picture from this summer is "unsightly" and the bottom picture is acceptable) is gone. Utterly and completely devastated.
So it looks like in the spring, I'll be needing to build some garden boxes and/or planters to set on this eyesore of a driveway to keep my garden growing. Great. Just what I need--another project that may cost money, especially when my husband, the sole breadwinner of the household, just lost his job on Monday.
Is it any wonder that this new development is leaving me totally devastated?
